Help! I've Lost my Settings

Settings might work fine initially, but stop working during your next visit. Sometimes the settings are also lost after several days or weeks. Here are some typical scenarios:

Settings Are Lost After the Browser Is Closed

If the settings are lost after the browser is closed, they are probably only saved as so-called session or temporary cookies. Please see the browser-specific assistance above.

Settings Are Lost After a While

If your settings are working fine for a while but are suddenly lost, you must set your configuration again. Please see the browser-specific assistance above.

Settings Are Not Saved at All

If your settings are not saved at all, you may not have consented to the use of cookies. You can do so by enabling Allow Personal Site Preferences in the Privacy Settings.

Recovering Settings

If the settings for your Personal World Clock are repeatedly lost, there is a way to simplify the recovery process. Once you have saved your Personal World Clock, please click on Share This Personal World Clock below the clock. Then save that page as a favorite or bookmark. If the settings are lost later, you can access your Personal World Clock using this bookmark.

Using the Site Without Cookies

If you do not have cookie support at all or you have disabled the Allow Personal Site Preferences option in the Privacy Settings, our customization features will not work for you. However, all content on the site will still be available.
